Nippon Ham Fighters

Yuki Saito threw 100 pitches in the bullpen at Kamagaya today.  It was the most he ever threw since he hurt his right shoulder last year.  He is scheduled to pitch two innings in relief in a Ni-gun game against Lotte on the 30th.  Assuming no problems, he could be pushed to five innings in a Ni-gun start in late-July.  That could put his return to the Ichi-gun roster some time in August.
